Calcutta 'tour', of Berlin.

I just heard from Jose, one of our CCS phd students about this crazed Calcutta ‘tour’:

> (another stuff that maybe can be interesting you… two weeks ago I went
> to Berlin for weekend and a friend of mine who is doing his
> ethnography about tourism in Berlin told me about a new tourist tour
> called “callcutta”. The idea is basically to walk with a mobile phone
> speaking with an operator who is in a call center in Calcutta and
> gives you information about Berlin).

But no mishti doi! Alas.
